I'd be willing to take a stab at redesign if there is enough interest.

Some sites I've built (using Plone)


I could use the exposure and it wouldn't cost the group anything (it'd
be my way of volunteering for this group since I'm new to Python
programming and can't really contribute as an expert in any way..).

It would have to be pretty simple (I don't think the current design is
bad.. maybe just some oomph) to bring it up to speed.

Or since Plone is a Python based application we install it and style
that .. it includes membership capabilities and loads of modules.

Either way, I'm willing to come up with a look & feel for the site
that is standards compliant.

btw.. I dont have a biz site at the moment..I'm moving zope & php
servers into HE and reinstalling software... taking a bit of a hiatus
(though I'm still busy with clients) but should have biz site back
online by next weekend.
